"This is better than The Last Waltz and is perhaps one of the best Live Albums ever produced"

No "perhaps" needed here: ROA is without question one of the best live albums ever- it absolutely stomps the bloated, sluggish "Last Watlz" into the ground

Ditto, GREAT album . The Band is still "The Band" not "Robbie Robertson and his pals the Band ", at this point .
I always thought the Robertson, sounded more interesting earlier ( when he is a bit like Hubert Sumlin, of Howling Wolf's band ), that later where he sounds a bit more "guitar hero', conventional ( I feel the same about Dave Davies of the Kinks ).
The horns fit perfectly in this album .

Boy, I couldn't agree more about Dave Davies. He was so interesting in the late 60's/early 70's - right up until Schoolboys or Sleepwalker, if you ask me (which I know you didn't). Arthur is my favorite Dave album, because he is so all over the place (Australia!).

Interesting that you brought him into this particular thread, too, because the Kinks also toured with horns in '73, an odd coincidence that I enjoy pointing out every once in a while.

It is hard to pick a favorite, all those albums from 66-71 ( maybe with the exception of "Lola vs Powerman" and the "Percy" soundtrack ) are masterpieces .
Relevant to the "horns" thread, I especially love "Muswell Hillbillies" .
The Kinks are probably the most underrated of the great bands .

Muswell Hillbillies is the only one I listen to anymore . First British punk band ?
But then I'm not a 20th century man
Anymore
With acute schizophrenia paranoid blues
I do need a holiday , cause I'm just skin & bones
And the demons , oh , the demons
Do you have any alcohol ?
Oh, the demons
Lord, Lord , it's a complicated life
No ! No !
Here Come the people in grey !
I'll have a cuppa tea instead .

Credit for the horn arrangements goes to Allen Toussaint.
Check out the classic record he did with Lee Dorsey, "Yes We Can".
